SolusVM Lifecycle Policy

SolusVM Lifecycle Policy

branch version is defined in a following way:

  • Stable branch in general is updated every 3 months. It contains version that proves itself on the production. Last stable version in the branch is supported.
  • Mainline branch is updated on demand. All features, improvements and fixes are delivered to this branch at first. Last mainline version in the branch is supported.
  • Beta branch is published on demand when some features require additional external testing. Last beta version in the branch is supported.

Example: SolusVM 1.23.04 is in the mainline branch and is supported, 1.22.04 is in the stable branch and is supported. New update 1.23.07 is published into the mainline branch, 1.23.04 is moved into the stable branch. Now 1.22.04 is not supported, only 1.23.04 and 1.23.07 are supported.
